DFM Ayalon: "Our enemies recruit so-called ‘Human-Rights Activists’ as agents to vilify Israel around the world"
(Communicated by the Bureau of Deputy Foreign Minister Ayalon)
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon participated in the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute (JPPPI) conference on the issue of "De-legitimization of the State of Israel, the Jewish People, and the link between them.
In a panel discussion on the subject of "What is the evaluation of Israel and Jewish organizations in the Diaspora of the situation, and what are they doing with regard to de-legitimization", DFM Ayalon stated that "The frontline of the struggle in the international arena is the struggle against de-legitimization of Israel. Enemies who have been unable to subjugate us militarily, economically or by terrorism are trying to do this with unfounded slander and de-legitimization of Israel internationally. To this purpose, our enemies recruit so-called ‘Human-Rights Activists’ as agents to vilify Israel around the world. In order to deal with this problem, an opposition network of Jewish and non-Jewish organizations, academic institutions, and NGOs must be formed, with the intention of establishing a united front against this de-legitimization, and detailing the situation in Israel as it really is."
